Help! Confused with AVG 8 Internet Security!!

  Sabi 15:54 25 Apr 2008


I have installed a proper (not free version) of AVG 8 Internet Security in my laptop.

I use to have "Zone Alarm Internet Security Suit" for the last 3 years. It was OK. However I decided to go for a different AV this year and changed to AVG.

I found the software a bit confusing though! For instance:
Every time I switched on the computer a window appeared for "AVG Firewall profile switch" Underneath the title there was a space for put in a new area!!! in "new or unassigned network was detected"
In the same window there was options to choose a profile: "Allow all", "Block all" or "Standard computer" Either of the profile I clicked on, it asked to put the new area in first!! As I didn't have a clue what they were for, I clicked on "disabled dialog for assigning new area"

I also have noticed the follwoing problems:

- my computer (laptop) have gone extremely slow since AVG installation !!!
- my cursor is flickering too fast!
- If I am on internet, the page freezes to the point that I have to end program from Task Manager!!
I have run CCleaner, Ad-Aware 2007 already to get some speed back but it didn't make a difference. Does AVG suppose to slow down the computer???

I will be grateful for your advice on the above matters.

Many thanks

I use Windows XP, AVG 8 IS, Ad-aware 2007
